Product Review: Monq Therapeutic Air

Hello lovlies!

I thought while we are waiting for IVF progress I'd try my hand at writing a little product review for a new favorite item of mine!

I have had an interest in aromatherapy for some time but found the idea of getting started (not to mention the cost of buying the oils) daunting to say the least. A couple months back an ad popped up on Facebook about Monq, a therapeutic aromatherapy inhaler - I was intrigued.

I decided to try the 'Zen' Monq which contains frankincense, orange, and ylang ylang to aid in stress and anxiety. It also happens to be their most popular blend! My package arrived yesterday and I was impressed. Upon opening the envelope I could already smell the oils. The device was in a plastic tube with a silicone pop off stopper. The item itself is a nice shade of lavender with the blend listed on the side with the Monq logo. The end has a faceted crystal led that lights up when you inhale - so pretty!

Being a non-smoker it was odd trying the Monq for the first time, but it wasn't difficult. The product is not meant to be inhaled into the lungs but breathed in through your mouth and then let out gently through your nose. The flavor is subtle and pleasant, and the aroma is amazing! I found it to be quite calming and relaxing. I have used it in moments of anxiety and have found it does calm my nerves.

Things to know:  The Monq is NOT an cigarette! It contains NO tobacco, NO nicotine, and NO artificial chemicals. It works by heating the oils and plant extracts into a vapor that you breathe. I can see how it might help smokers to quit as it gives the motion and act similar to smoking and some of the essential oil blends might give a calming feeling to curb cravings. I am thinking of trying to use it instead of snacking or drinking wine when I read and watch T.V. in hopes of loosing weight - we shall see! This product however, is not FDA regulated and is not intended to cure or treat disease. If you try it please be sure to read their disclaimer on their website!

Monq comes in 7 blends, they are as follows:

Zen:         frankincense, orange, ylang ylang
Vibrant:   ginger, lemon, spearmint
Sleepy:    lavender, lemongrass, valerian
Active:    black pepper, orange, sage
Healthy:  cinnamon, majoram, tumeric
Happy:    fennel, thyme, vanilla
Sexy:       jasmine, lime, patchouli

As for the price - it is pretty costly. One device with shipping cost me nearly $40.00 after conversion to USD. It should last from 150-200 puffs, using it as recommended (2-3 puffs, 2-3 times a day) it could last up to 2-4 weeks depending on frequency of use. The device is good quality, so I think its worth it, especially with the benefit of having essential oils pre-blended. I am really looking forward to trying the other kinds. I would love to see not only more blends in the future, but perhaps a reusable pen!

I love Monq so much I became an ambassador, if you are interested in trying it for yourself you can get 10% off by entering my coupon code LIFE10OFF at checkout. Go to Monq.com and try it for yourself! Stay tuned, when I can try the other kinds I'll post an update!

As always, thanks for reading!
